AG Museum nq:(.00ds volunteer assistance witl 1 1997 exhibits Textiles are perhaps some of the hardest articles to keep through time, whether in a home or in a museum. So many things affect their health. Because of this, a good variety of the types and styles of woven textiles through the ages are often one of the least seen examples of artifacts on dis- play at museums. A wide variety of textiles were made by skilled weavers on looms in the late 1700s to mid 1800s. There was al- so a revival of weaving in the 1930s. While the Delaware Agricultur- al Museum and Village has sever- al wonderful examples of textiles woven through the centuries, they are limited. For this reason, the museum's curator is looking for assistance with a new exhibit. The museum is planning an exhibit of woven textiles (coverlets or coun- terpanes) for early in 1998. The museum staff is interested in see- ing any textiles, especially those that have a Delaware or Delmarva history and/or are connected to a rural family from the area. Objects relating to weaving and looms are also of interest. Anyone having a textile to share with the communi- ty is encouraged to call Jenifer Dolde at 302-734-1618. The Delaware Agricultural Mu- seum and Village is located in Dover on North DuPont Highway. Admission to the museum is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors 60+ and children aged 6-17. Children un- der six and members are free. For information on the 1998 schedule of exhibits and events, call the museum at 302-734-1618. Rer oboth Art League to host showing of f lm on artist Jack Lewis on Aug. 8 "If You Lived Here You Would Be Home Now," the film docu- mentary about the life and work of internationally known Delaware artist Jack Lewis, will be shown at the Rehoboth Art League on Fri- day, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Cham- bers Studio. The film, which was funded by the Delaware Humanities Forum, depicts the relationship that Lewis has developed with southern Delaware and especially the town of Bridgeville over the last 50 years. 'Turtle Race' to benefit Maryland fire department The 19th Annual Great North American Turtle Race will be held at Cedar Hill Park, Bivalve, Md. on Sunday, Aug. 17, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.. rain or shine.

Proceeds benefit the West Side Volunteer Fire Depart- ment. For more information, call 410-873-2470. "If You Lived Here..." had its Delaware premier in Bridgeville in October of 1996. The Delaware Humanities Forum grant for the film was the largest in that organi- zation's history. "I am very pleased to screen the film at the Rehoboth Art League because Jack has meant so much to the development of the League," said Nancy O'Brien, the league's executive director. "Jack's style of making art acces- sible to people from all walks of life is what the league is all about, and that's due in large part to Jack Lewis's influence." The film is free and open to the public. For more information call 227-8408.
